Support Mild Teething with doTERRA Essential Oils

You may want to try some doTERRA essential oils to help with teething and Clove essential oil is the most recommend. It is suggested to first mix clove with fractionated coconut oil, then dab a little on your finger and rub it on the gums where the tooth is coming through. I didn’t get in to doTERRA until recently so I haven’t had a chance to try any doTERRA oils on my own babies but I found some helpful information from others about doTERRA and mild teething you may like…

Always dilute oils in a carrier oil (like fractionated coconut oil or olive oil) before using it on your baby. Apply Lavender on the infant’s feet and then Melaleuca or Lavender on the gum. Other resources suggested applying:

    I am reading so many conflicting things. I have read that clove is unsafe to use with babies and yet so many articles say to use clove with teethers. . .help :-)

    Just signed up as a Wellness consultant last week, and JUST in time, one of my twins (who turned two on Thursday) is getting his two year molars. Both my boys have been great teethers….until now. Rubbed a drop of Deep Blue, lavender and oil ice oil on his jaw lines tonight, he quit crying in 30 seconds, after 30 minutes of fussing and crying.

    I’m reading this at the perfect time. My 5 1/2 month old is cutting his first tooth…. Eek! Right now the only thing that’s helped is ice cold teething toys. I need to try some of my oils, but I’ve been afraid of using them on him. I’ll have to give lavender and melaleuca a try when he wakes up.

    I am experiencing teething with twins, and very recently started researching the benefits of EO. Thank you for this post! Can’t wait to try some!!!!

    My youngest is beginning to teeth and I am trying to figure out what will work best. I am a wellness advocate but almost everyone swears by all the different types of oils! I might as well get any of the ones I don’t have and try them. The deep blue makes me nervous, does it really help?? It helps with all other pain I must say!! Have you heard of using Roman Chamomile?

      I have had friends use clove mixed with FCO and it was very successful. You can also apply lavender to the jaw line for soothing and comfort. I haven’t heard of using deep blue but I’m sure it would also be helpful on the jaw line ONLY. Deep blue is definitely not safe to use internally.

    I am just getting into essential oils. Just bought one and plan on buying three more to try them out. Can’t wait! Really looking forward to trying lavender as we have a teether that needs help as well as a 3 year old that needs help to calm down at bed time.

    How great!! I used teething oil on my son and it worked great! I share the knowledge with as many
    Moms as I can.

    How do you dilute the lavender for the application on the gum area for a baby? Thanks in advance. I am in dire need.

    I just learned of using lavender for a teething baby just last week. I have been rubbing lavender on her cheeks following the gum line. I’ve been amazed how much it has helped. I’ll start putting it on her feet.
